    Default Streamlight TLR-8 w/ HK45C

    So I emailed Streamlight asking if the TLR-8 A G fit on the HK45C. I've seen the previous threads where a custom key is required. Is this no longer the case? This is their response:

    "The HK 45C has a standard picatinny rail, so you would just use the picatinny key that comes with."

    Unless they've started offering a new key, they are wrong..... my money is on the person answering your question doesn't know what he/she is talking about. get ahold of @mattfrey . he has the magic. I've not tried the newer version of the TLR7/8 with the paddle'ish switches, but I assume it works the same as the original release version.

    I emailed em a while back with the same question. Turns out they they just assumed it would fit. It didn’t. As said above just get with Matt. Love mine and thinking of getting the new one with paddles! Too lazy to search for older pics and this was just the newest lol.

    They were correct about the HK having a standard picatinny rail. The problem with the HK's are the trigger guard shapes can make it so the keys that come with the streamlights hit the guard before the key engages the rail.

    I had someone on here make me a custom key for my P2000sk and it's awesome.

    I modified a key awhile ago and then had Matt Frey make me one. I also emailed Streamlight and badgered them on social media. No reply ever.

    Would that work on a USP9C as well?
    I don't have much but what I have counts.

    That's a whole different animal. But Streamlight makes a different (older) light that comes with a USPc adapter.

    A while back i removed the Key and clamped it on my USP. It just had a chance of sliding forward Could it be possible to create a custom jaw or clamp to replace the old one? It’s only held in by the screw and two studs that slide in the light housing. One that would fill the right groove similar to the Streamlight USP light?

    In the past I had a TLR4 that I just clamped onto my USP. I took one of the stock keys and used a Dremel to shave it down so that the key rode against the bottom of the pistol to act as an additional contact point. I would tighten the clamp screw down pretty good and it ended up not moving around even when I shot it.

    Eventually someone just gave me a GG&G adapter for my full-size USP so I just used that and the light and then eventually switched to a TLR1 HL.

    I'm looking to do the same thing to a USP compact I just picked up. Anyone have a compact with a GG&G adapter and a TLR7? I ordered the light and adapter last night.

    I've got a holster company that's going to make a holster for me. They requested pictures of the set up though. Just to get the process started sooner, anyone got this setup that can send me a picture of?
